13 of 13. Not sure that that's really a good thing though ;^).

This study confirms my opinion that most people should not vote.

I got 11 of 13, the two missed ones being the two "here is a picture of someone... who is it?"

Like I should give a rat's ass about someone's picture? This is news of note? What someone looks like?

So basically, I got a perfect score.

Another perfect score to report.

I can't believe so many people knew which country was Brazil. Almost double the number who knew which part of the government the Republicans control.

I guess geography education in public schools deserves more credit that give it.

Yes. Less geography and more writing. :)

Now, I've heard excuses in my time, but that one takes the cake. :)

13 of 13. Test was really a broad measure of how informed you are on the social and political events of the day.

More like an indicator of how much TV you watch.
